TWO innings dominated the clash between Ingrow and Gargrave in Mewies Solicitors Craven League Division One.

Shahid Ajmal made 69 for hosts Ingrow in their 132 after they chose to bat, but Dom Kay replied with 73 not out, including 11 fours and three sixes as Gargrave won by eight wickets in the 29th over.

Ben Howlett (4-49) and John Beckwith (4-20) had done the earlier damage with the ball as Gargrave climbed to fourth.

Cowling, third in 2021, regularly topped 200, but have been more patchy this time around.

However, they made 214-9 at home to Wilsden after choosing to have first go, with Martyn Dalby (74) and Rahman Ali (56) leading the way, backed up by Laiq Ur Rehman (25) and Yasser Chatta (23).

Ali then completed a fine match by taking 3-8 as Wilsden were dismissed for 152, with Cowling climbing to eighth.

The news was less happy for cellar dwellers Sutton, who managed only 39 at Hepworth & Idle, who won by nine wickets in the ninth over.

In Division Two, third-placed Glusburn made short work of Foulridge at Park Field, dismissing the Lancastrians for 78 after they opted to bat, Tanveer Munir leading the way with 4-27.

Keeper Ben Sugden (73, including 14 fours) and captain Jack Roberts (39no) then helped the Cobbydalers to a seven-wicket win in exactly 30 overs.

Bradley became the latest victims of leaders Riddlesden, who are strong candidates for two successive promotions.

Riddlesden made 179 as Toby Meynell (5-71) and Vince Grant (3-38) tried to keep them in check, but Bradley were then dismissed for 80, with 18-year-old Meynell defiant on 24 not out and captain and keeper Dave Hunt making 23.

Skipton CI made a similar score at Long Lee, being castled for 78, which would have been much worse were it not for Nikhil Thomas’ 33 not out at No 3.

Long Lee had earlier made 137, with Aneesh Babu taking 4-23.

Thornton-in-Craven continued their theme of relatively comfortable victories in Division Three at home to Hepworth & Idle II.
